Cyber Conflict After Stuxnet

With the deployment of Stuxnet, a highly sophisticated piece of attack software, the next big step has finally been taken in cyber conflict.  As the first known case of a piece of software creating a significant physical effect against critical infrastructure in the furtherance of national security objectives, Stuxnet has changed everything.  With Stuxnet eventually being leaked to the public, larger and more numerous cyber weapons could be built and create serious cyber security concerns for people, businesses, and governments around the world.  The project seeks to answer a number of questions while dividing the main content into five sections.  CCSA will reach out to experts outside of the national security field, including historians, ethicists, and technology experts, to seek diverse areas of expertise and increase the scope of the project while including alternative perspectives.
